“All The Colours Of The World Are Between Black And White” by Babatunde Apalowo

In theaters on May 8th – With  Tope Tedela, Riyo David, Martha Orhiere


Bambino has settled into his bachelor life. He has a stable income from his job as a delivery driver in Lagos, and he is well-liked by his neighborhood, whom he helps whenever he can.

While the advances of his neighbor leave him cold, Bambino meets the charismatic Bawa, a photographer, who stirs something in him…



From Equatorial Africa where I grew up, I kept the colors in memory.

Babatunde Apalowo, originally from a village in southern Nigeria, had the idea of making a film about Lagos, its colors, its life, its bustling rhythm, its modernity.

The discovery of Lagos was a shock, and he immediately fell in love with the city, until he heard the story of his roommate who was lynched because he was homosexual. The director felt involved immediately and wanted to challenge this city. Was a love story between two men possible?

Everything was complicated in the filming, the permits, the casting – the actors were found three days before the start of filming – because nobody wanted to shoot in this film.

And the love story between the two men is filmed at the same pace as we discover the city of Lagos, and its displayed homophobia, illegal and punishable by 14 years in prison.


“However, the hardest thing to overcome was not the fear of being condemned but my doubts in my ability, as a heterosexual man, to tell this story.

I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to capture the characters’ experiences and that I would unintentionally make a caricature of their lives. Nevertheless, I found the courage to tell this story when I realized that, after all, love is universal.” Babatunde Apalowo

The director positions himself in the character of Bambino who doesn’t really see the world he lives in; thus the secondary characters do not appear on screen.

The real supporting character is Lagos, a city photographed by Bawa but excluding the protagonists.

A beautiful film about sexual identity, and like colors, there are not one or two, but countless, each more beautiful than the other.


“The rainbow is part of nature and you have to be in the right place to see it. It’s beautiful, all these colors even those we can’t see. It suits us as individuals because we are of all colors. Our sexuality is of all colors. We are of all genders, races, and ages.”

Gilbert Baker (excerpt from the press kit)

Babatunde Apalowo is a filmmaker and screenwriter based in the United Kingdom.

He won the Homevide prize (sponsored by the United Nations), and his short film “A Place of Happiness” was selected in several short film festivals.

In 2022, he won the award for Best Editing at the AMVCA, and is nominated for his screenplay at the African Movie Academy Awards.

His first feature film is “All the Colors of the World”.
